I'll be handling more the F7 and less the F5 in the future..
2) The "find", "Search in all files" does not give me this occurrence of
This name slipped in via an accidental paste I think
Normally I give the menu items names like mnuHelp or mniHelpAbout, or
But I didn't know I had to be so carefull with names there..
